I live in Richmond, Va. where I own and manage VCU student housing.

Catherine Nottingham purchased this house in 2006

I was born and raised right outside of Cape Charles. Growing up we spent every summer at out Smith Beach cottage. This Cape

Charles home has replaced my childhood beach and boating getaway.

This home that I restored myself combines the best of old house with modern amenities.

Week long stay in Cape Charles.

  • 2 of 5
The overall vacation was wonderful! We had a great low key vacation with our kids. It's like stepping back in time in this quaint beachside community. The "cottage" had plenty of space for everyone with comfortable beds and a nice big kitchen. We also thoroughly enjoyed the porches. However, I emailed the owner to ask what time we could check in and she emailed back that we could get in after 2pm but before 3pm. We were early at 2pm and were going to wait outside a bit. The owner spotted us and said that they were running behind on cleaning and the maid would be there later to clean up what she, herself didn't like doing. Then, contrary to my earlier inquiry said that check-in was at 4pm but she would go ahead and let us in...just don't unpack anything in the kitchen or the downstairs bath. She said that the maid didn't speak English so just point if there was anything additional we wanted cleaned; I found this rude. Also, when the maid arrived, she did indeed have a strong accent but I had no problem speaking with her. After being "cleaned" , my family and I settled in. The cottage was decent but there was absolutley no attention to detail. There were massive dust bunnies under the furniture and the twin bed in the kids room was in fact a mattress shoved under the other bed. There were old used bars of soap in the showers along with several bottles of shampoo and conditioner. The fridge had all sorts of old half used bottles and jars of food in it. The cabinets were full of nonperishable items; including spices from 2011. I have seen coffee filters and salt and pepper left for renters before but the amount of food items was ridiculous. The jacuzzi tub was stained and filthy. I would never dream of sitting in it. It was nice to have three showers but they all could have used a good cleaning. The cottage has so much potantial and if a little elbow grease and attention to detail were implemented it could be quite lovely.

Surprising cottage

  • 4 of 5
We were delightfully surprised when we walked in. Like the TARDIS it seems to be larger inside than out. The kitchen is particularly impressive. Also the covered deck in the back of the house was delightful. The house was clean and comfortable and the owner was very professional and polite.

Amazing place I will always return to

  • 5 of 5
It is furnished beautifully, nice and clean and right near both the beach and town. Walking distance to everything. The owner is highly responsive. We have stayed here multiple times and always choose this house first if it is available!! I almost do let want to write his because we don't want others to find this gem!!!

Owner Was Unbelievably Unprofessional And Rude

  • 1 of 5
FYI, this house doesn't have internet- even though it is listed in the Amenities section and was part of the reason that I chose this rental in the first place (I telecommute). We made the most of it, but the owner's behavior was horrendous.

We arrived on Sat. night and found that the sidewalk in front of the house was torn up and surrounded by caution tape. The spot where the owner had told me to park (when we spoke two days prior) was taped off as well. A warning about the construction would have been nice, as it was a nuisance for the entire week, between having to repeatedly move our cars to accommodate the trucks and having to watch a group of construction workers sit on the front yard every morning.

The house itself was mostly as-pictured, but a lot dirtier than we expected. Whoever wrote the previous review was right about the lack of attention to detail; we found all sorts of gross little surprises that I've never seen in a rental before, including the aforementioned half-used bars/bottles of soap in the showers and huge collection of open condiments and nonperishables in the kitchen. Drawers and closets filled with personal garbage, dirty countertops and utensils, an unpacked dishwasher, a grimy stick of butter on a plate in the fridge - the whole kitchen, honestly, was filthy. We mopped the floors twice during our stay and our feet were still black on the bottom for most of the week. 5/10 of the ceiling lights didn't work. The bathroom was similar: weird scum/dried paint in the tub, toothpaste stains on the faucet, and jacuzzi jets that were so nasty, I was glad that they wouldn't turn on.

Only 1 of the 3 beds was fully made. The other 2 had no pillowcases and some pretty foul drool-stained pillows. The last had no sheets, just a mattress pad. We looked in every obvious place for the sheets and couldn't find any that fit, so I called the owner around 9:30 PM to ask if she could bring over a set. She got defensive immediately and insisted they were in the closet (they weren't). I also mentioned that the house was quite dirty- perhaps the maid never came? She further insisted that the house was scrubbed from top to bottom, and began to belligerently yell/slur at me that I should be thankful it wasn't dirtier and "enjoy my vacation". Then she hung up on me, called me back, screamed some more, and hung up again! I would have demanded my money back if she had let me get a word in edgewise. Unbelievable. Hope I never hear from her again.
